August 2016 Pop It Ups Designer Challenge #1

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our first Pop It Ups Designer Challenge for August. This time round Karen has given us the challenge .....
Flower or Flour" - Make a card with flowers OR make a card with a baking/cooking theme - you decide!

As you can see, I decided to play with one of Karen's new die sets that are being released by Elizabeth Craft Designs in August. 

This card uses the Flower Pot Pop Stand Card die set which features a flower pot that can be used as I have done above as a pop stand card or as a stand alone Pop Up Box type card whichever you prefer. The die set also comes with 3 different sized flowers and and a leaf die which is what I used to fill my flower pot.

I have also used one of Karen's Stage It Stencil Stripes to create a plaid effect to decorate the layers of the flower pot and the corner pieces on the card.

The sentiment is from the new Occasions Clear Stamp Set and layered using dies from the Anita Frames Pop Up Card die set.

Here is a close up view of the flower pot filled with flowers.

Here you can see my card partly open so that you can see how the flower pot folds up when the card is closed.

For the front of my card I added a birthday sentiment also from the new Occasions Clear Stamp Set  and layered using dies from the Anita Frames Pop Up Card die set and the Labels & Circles die set.

I added the butterfly (also included in the Flower Pot Pop Stand Card die set) to the top of the labels .

I also used one of the borders from the Bead Strings 2 along the left side of the card. 

If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Craft Giraffe (now online only).
